Re: Equation numbering methods.

G'day, Martin et al

Perhaps an option in the Lists Palette to choose between leading and trailing list item numbers (with following and preceding tabs respectively) could be of use in this and other contexts.

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: Mysterious Control Character

G'day, Philip et al Yes, you're quite right, Philip. With that hint about the font size, I now see that it was set at 256 pt in Ulrich's document. As the font size is reduced, progressively more of the code string appears. At 256 pt, anything beyond the "\x" extended beyond the right margin and henc...

Re: Mysterious Control Character

G'day, Philip et al

When I do that, the character is replaced by "\x".

However, once the aptly named "mysterious" character is selected, its Unicode code is revealed in the Formatting Examiner Palette, which is easier than using the Character Viewer.

Re: Mysterious Control Character

G'day, Ulrich et al Yeah, it's all a bit crazy. The Character Viewer is the tool you want, but (inexplicably) pasting into its search field does not give the correct character code, at least in this instance. However, if the character is selected in the Nisus document, it will automatically appear a...

Re: Mysterious Control Character

G’day, Ulrich, Philip et al Strange characters like this often seem to arise when you copy something (generally a complete entity such as a telephone number) from an email message or a Webpage and then paste it into a text document. As Philip says, it's usually safe to delete them. Deleting all occu...

Re: New MacBookPro, error messages

G’day, jrochest et al Not sure about the other stuff, but a bit of “education” of your new computer may fix the document opening problem. Select a .rtf file (or whatever format you usually save NWP files in) in the Finder, then File > Get Info (Cmd-I). In the window that opens, set the “Open with” a...

Style Superimposition

G'day, all Feature request: Allow Styles to be superimposed on one another. This would avoid the need to create multiple versions of a Style via the "Based on" facility to suit as many underlying Styles as are required in a document. Perhaps it could be achieved by adding "Existing Paragraph Style" ...

Re: Paragraphs Starts Odd Page?

G’day, fde101 et al This is a bit trickier than it may at first appear because subsequent addition or removal of text prior to the designated paragraph may need to effect the insertion or deletion of a blank page immediately before the paragraph. This means that any Style would need to have a dynami...

Re: Macro and Powerfind

G'day, dougelrsystems et al

Nisus Writer will create the macro for you. See "Create a macro from Find and Replace expressions" on Page 449 of the Nisus Writer User Guide (under the Help menu). Once you have your macro document, you can edit it as you see fit.

Hope this helps.

Re: Separate file into sections and then recombine

G'day, Philip et al I was referring to Nisus's technical Sections, hence my capitalization of the word. Besides the example I gave, multi-column Sections are also ones that would not necessarily have a heading attached (as indicated in a previous post by Philip). The fact that the class of Section b...

Re: Separate file into sections and then recombine

G'day, Philip et al Your "Split Document by Section Breaks" macro works well, thank you. The observation that one may wish to exclude certain Sections from such a document split is an astute one. Your "Split Document by Section Headings" macro is interesting. I was pleased to learn how one might pre...

Re: Separate file into sections and then recombine

G'day, Þorvarður et al Yes, I had a look at that Split Documents macro again, in relation to Frank's query. However, it treats page breaks and section breaks in the same way, so it will probably not give the desired result if a section spans several page breaks. I could not see how to make the requi...

G’day, Martin et al I submit that the current name of that command is somewhat misleading, especially in the absence of any documented description of the intended behavior.

Re: Sentence capitalization

G’day, frazman10 et al

I don’t have Express to check this, but I get the same result in Nisus Writer Pro. The command appears not to be documented in the User Guide for either application. I think its current implementation represents a bug.

Cheers,
Adrian
